Westborough – Second-graders from the Armstrong Elementary School went to the polls for their own presidential election Nov. 5. They were excited about the election, but disappointed that they cannot officially vote until they are 18.

Teachers created a booth and ballots, and handed out voting stickers. The students learned about the voting process, including how to cast a vote. The results were revealed Nov. 7 when the kids returned to school. Barack Obama won with 77 ballots; Mitt Romney received 18. According to the staff, the results were a bit surprising because some of the kids have been complaining about the new healthy school lunches, which they believe are the “work” of Michelle Obama.
